St John’s Church, Locks Heath welcomes you to a Christmas tree festival for 2022. This will be the fourth festival at St John's. The first was in 2008 and the last one in 2019, just before the pandemic. 

Join worshippers to see dozens of decorated Christmas trees in a tranquil environment. In 2019, more than 3,400 people of all ages visited the festival to see the 50 trees. This year, organisers are opening up the church further and aim to have even more trees on display. The theme is ‘Celebrations’, and the festival also aims to celebrate our faith, and will publicise the many groups on offer at the church – from toddlers to teenagers, and from fellowship to faith groups.

The festival will also feature a wide range of community groups, choirs singing, nursery groups, schools, care homes and all ages in between taking part. Entrance and refreshments are free. All donations are shared between Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank and Two Saints – a charity in Southampton that supports homeless people.

Bishop Jonathan is opening the festival
